Crab Question.?

Im hearing too sides about "crabs".........I have a new tanks setup "no fish" yet waiting till I get back from vacation at the end of the month to buy some fish. Anyhow I do have 5 turbo snails and today I picked up 2
Sally Lightfoot crabs. Question are these crabs going to be a problem.? are they going to eat everything off my rocks.? They told me at my LFS that they should be ok in my tank.

Well the ones I have are pretty BIG.......Setup half the night watching them. Man they were nibbling at everything, parts of the rock were floating all over the tank. I said thats it out come the rock and out go the crabs. (put the rock back in of course)..........I tell ya they were fun to watch, but in the long run Im not sure
